‘Why do we love Blur? Why does anyone? I am guessing it has to be the uniquely brilliant, surprisingly sophisticated but deceptively simple pop intuition which powered hit after hit in an era where you had to be credible artists on one hand and compete with Kylie for airplay on the other. No one did it quite like Blur.
How do you lay claim to being the best Blur tribute? I don’t think that is up to the band, only the audience can decide. Audiences that know what a Blur live show was all about will recognise the irreverence, the weirdly arrogant self efacing demeanour, the serious musicianship and the throw away punk energy. If that doesn’t float your your boat then I am guessing you probably don’t even like Blur.’
Faux Fighters Uk started when a bored Ben Rudge, drummer turned frontman, decided to start a one-man recording project taking the role of every band member and recording “best of you” on his own. Utterly impressed with his new found skills, he sent the demo out to his long term buddy Bassist, Liam Slattery whose only reply was “You multi instrumental talented F*&ker”
First to jump on board with this crazy Idea was Guitarist Russ Millard closely followed by Paul Beddow. I mean if your gonna go Foo you gotta have 3 guitars right?!?!
Next came the hard part, finding a drummer that would power this along & also put up with having a drummer as a front man.In steps Kris Perrin or as we like to call him “Meat Fists”. The line up was complete! Or so we thought!! After one show we decided that we’re gonna need some keys! Welcome to the fray Mr Ben Selleck, I mean the foos can’t be without Rami & neither can the Faux’s!
Fast forward 2 years and here we are, 75 foos songs in the bag & ready to make some noise!
